The Pilgrim's Progress: From this World to that Which is to Come [1854]

£34.99

Product description

A scarce edition, published in 1854 by Houlston and Wright, London.

Complete with six engravings on wood, printed on thick paper at intervals throughout the book. Each engraving is accompanied by the corresponding quote and page number. Includes comprehensive notes to both parts one and two and printers directions to place the engravings. At the end of the book there are two full pages of advertisements.
The canvas board boards are imprinted with the title and authors name along with embellishment. The spine has gilt lettering with both the title, authors surname and publisher.

This famous story of man's progress through life in search of salvation remains one of the most entertaining allegories of faith ever written. Set against realistic backdrops of town and country, the powerful drama of the pilgrim's trials and temptations follows him in his harrowing journey to the Celestial City.
Along a road filled with monsters and spiritual terrors, Christian confronts such emblematic characters as Worldly Wiseman, Giant Despair, Talkative, Ignorance, and the demons of the Valley of the Shadow of Death. But he is also joined by Hopeful and Faithful.
An enormously influential 17th-century classic, universally known for its simplicity, vigour, and beauty of language, The Pilgrim's Progress remains one of the most widely read books in the English language.

In Good condition. The book has some shelf-wear, most noticeably to the head and base of the spine. The boards are worn on the edges and the corners are bumped. The spine is slightly faded. The pages printed with engravings are badly foxed, although the other are fairly clean with foxing only on their edges. The front end-papers are inscribed with the name of a previous owner, Eliza Hook Radley, written in a calligraphic style in ink, and pencil. The binding is sound, however there is a split along the internal hinge between pages 144-145.
